Well isn't it ironic that Rand Paul now has the covid/19 virus. Wasn't he riding that "Coronavirus is a hoax" train not too long ago?

I follow Rand’s posts pretty closely and can never remember him saying it was a hoax. He did say that rather than open the coffers and pour billions of new money into this, he wanted funds to be diverted from less important things and transferred here. So he voted no on some bills for that reason, and of course it was translated into “Rand Paul Wants You To Die!!!!” headlines by the liberal media.

Pretty much.  For whatever reason, leftists have a jack off pretending Paul wants them to starve.  Based on nothing besides him trying to balance the budget.

Thrash band Testament have been hit hard, with frontman Chuck Billy as well as many in the crew testing positive. Their North American tour was supposed to start this week but of course many of the dates have already been cancelled before this announcement.

Marshal Cuomo said today that "40 to 80 percent of New York State residents" are going to come down with this virus. Never mind that even on the Diamond Princess cruise ship, which was a perfect petri dish for Coronavirus, only 17% of the passengers tested positive (with half of them asymptomatic). Never mind that numbers like that haven't occurred in the hardest hit zones (like Wuhan or northern Italy). Never mind that essentially no illness in human history, from the plague on down, has resulted in numbers like that. He's trying to save your life, dammit! And if he has to lie through his teeth, gin up a hysteria while acting like a pocket dictator, and impoverish hundreds of thousands of people, then you'd better shut up and take your medicine, plebe.

Ohio officially issued a stay home order today; I’m sure everyone but restaurants will be claiming essential life saving business status.

So Ron Paul wrote something where the word “hoax” is used, but liberals weren’t smart enough to 1) know the difference between Ron and Rand or 2) understand Ron’s completely true point where he’s clearly not saying that Coronavirus isn’t real.

"Governments love crises because when the people are fearful they are more willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them. After 9/11, for example, Americans accepted the near-total destruction of their civil liberties in the PATRIOT Act’s hollow promises of security.

It is ironic to see the same Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump last month for abuse of power demanding that the Administration grab more power and authority in the name of fighting a virus that thus far has killed less than 100 Americans.

Declaring a pandemic emergency on Friday, President Trump now claims the power to quarantine individuals suspected of being infected by the virus and, as Politico writes, “stop and seize any plane, train or automobile to stymie the spread of contagious disease.” He can even call out the military to cordon off a US city or state.

State and local authoritarians love panic as well. The mayor of Champaign, Illinois, signed an executive order declaring the power to ban the sale of guns and alcohol and cut off gas, water, or electricity to any citizen. The governor of Ohio just essentially closed his entire state.

The chief fearmonger of the Trump Administration is without a doubt Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health. Fauci is all over the media, serving up outright falsehoods to stir up even more panic. He testified to Congress that the death rate for the coronavirus is ten times that of the seasonal flu, a claim without any scientific basis.

On Face the Nation, Fauci did his best to further damage an already tanking economy by stating, “Right now, personally, myself, I wouldn’t go to a restaurant.” He has pushed for closing the entire country down for 14 days.

Over what? A virus that has thus far killed just over 5,000 worldwide and less than 100 in the United States? By contrast, tuberculosis, an old disease not much discussed these days, killed nearly 1.6 million people in 2017. Where’s the panic over this?

If anything, what people like Fauci and the other fearmongers are demanding will likely make the disease worse. The martial law they dream about will leave people hunkered down inside their homes instead of going outdoors or to the beach where the sunshine and fresh air would help boost immunity. The panic produced by these fearmongers is likely helping spread the disease, as massive crowds rush into Walmart and Costco for that last roll of toilet paper.

The madness over the coronavirus is not limited to politicians and the medical community. The head of the neoconservative Atlantic Council wrote an editorial this week urging NATO to pass an Article 5 declaration of war against the COVID-19 virus! Are they going to send in tanks and drones to wipe out these microscopic enemies?

People should ask themselves whether this coronavirus “pandemic” could be a big hoax, with the actual danger of the disease massively exaggerated by those who seek to profit – financially or politically – from the ensuing panic.

That is not to say the disease is harmless. Without question people will die from coronavirus. Those in vulnerable categories should take precautions to limit their risk of exposure. But we have seen this movie before. Government over-hypes a threat as an excuse to grab more of our freedoms. When the “threat” is over, however, they never give us our freedom back."
~ Dr. Ron Paul

I'm glad to see the old man specifically call out "Dr." Fauci.  That that Chicken Little has any public traction is one of the great disgraces of this time.  Someday soon we're going to step back and look at what's happened this month and I hope to God we have a serious accounting of who did what.  If we do, megalomaniacs like Fauci should be the first ones to the guillotine.

Of course everyone is losing their shit and buying up all the milk, meat, eggs bread pasta etc...that all their welfare and last paychecks for a while will be gone by Monday, when you can still go to the grocery stores.Symptoms? Severity?  Thoughts?
Just got home....It was shit. So the patient I have now is on a vent in ICU....I had to transfer them today. Her 02 stats started plummeting into the 70's (you want to be above 90 or high 80's with a history of COPD) Horrible rales (think of rattling in the lungs) , lactate levels skyrocketing, basically unable to perfuse efficiently on her own...hence the need to put her on a vent. So this RN was working on the floor 4 days ago to put it in perspective how hard it hit her. Younger than me.

So the reason I got this patient this weekend is because one of the other nurses refused to take her. Then she was going to another nurse...also refused to take her. Varying reasons...one was saying kids...other was saying elderly parents etc...

This is going to be a problem. You have staff trying to not rotate with these patients claiming family links preclude them/put them at higher risk. So I have no issue taking these patients, but as part of an ongoing rotation, not the designated fall guy because my parents are either dead on living on another continent, and I don't have young children at home. So both were already written up for this issue, and it's probably going to be an ongoing problem for at least the short term.

Isn't it part of their job is to take care of the sick no matter what? It's what they signed up for.

Yeah, I jumped the gun on that one, I should have fact checked that. That's what you get lurking on the left side of Twitter. There is just as much "fake news" coming from that side as there is on the other.
